Yellow Curry Broth
1 tablespoon vegetable or olive oil
1 tablespoon minced ginger (about a 1-inch piece of ginger)
4 garlic cloves, minced
2 teaspoons yellow curry powder (mild spice)
6 cups vegetable broth*
1/2 teaspoon salt, add more if necessary
3/4 cup (175ml) full-fat coconut milk (can sub with low-fat coconut milk)
about 45 to 50 square dumpling wrappers
1 package of firm tofu (I used a 14-ounce package)
1 1/2 tablespoons vegetable or olive oil
2 tablespoons minced ginger
1 tablespoon minced garlic
3 cups shredded green cabbage (ensure they are no longer than 1-inch pieces)
1 large carrot, grated (about 1 1/4 cups)
pinch of salt
4 scallions, sliced
black sesame seeds

Heat 1 1/2 tablespoons of oil in a large pan. Add the minced ginger and garlic and cook for 1 minute. Add the cabbage, carrots, and a pinch of salt to the pan and cook for 3 to 4 minutes. Transfer the tofu and scallions to the pan and add another pinch of salt. Cook for another 2 to 3 minutes. Taste the filling.
